MADISON, Wis | Walker leaves a fundamentally changed Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. —January 06, 2019— Scott Walker didn’t want to go out like this.
The once-rising Republican star who made his name kneecapping public sector unions as governor of Wisconsin leaves office in defeat Monday. He was narrowly beaten by Democrat Tony Evers , the state education superintendent who marched with teachers in protest of Walker’s policies.
After watching Evers take the oath to replace him, the 51-year-old Walker will depart the governor’s mansion and face life outside of elected office for the first time in 25 years.
